Yarran's crisp Riverina sparkling is a revelation. So much flavour and yet it's really well balanced too. As they say in the classics, a bargain at half the price.

A key plank of the appeal is that it's not sweet, it's not hard edged or unfriendly. Just well-made sparkling wine from a family owned Riverina producer who is overperforming in the value stakes.

Expert Reviews

90 Points - Ned Goodwin - Halliday's Wine CompanionCrafted from a select batch of chardonnay, baked apple, dried pineapple, a hint of toast and a persuasive mushroom note all linger from fore to aft, indicating some lees handling. The fizz is frothy and gentle. While the acidity plays a refreshment card, it is far from cool climate-high. Another top value proposition across a spritz or straight laced.

How's it taste?

Bright citrus fruit aromas lead to a crisp, clean palate with a subtle honeyed character. A lighter style of sparkling made for easy-drinking.

How was it made?

This is the first batch of fruit to be received at the winery each year. Chardonnay is picked early to create a fresh and youthful wine style showing lemon, citrus aromatics and a nice light fruit driven finish. The wine is aged on yeast for up to 9 months prior to bottling; a fine elegant style with great mousse and a touch of dosage (sweetness) remains for balance.

Who made it?

Yarran Wines is a family-owned and operated winery located a short distance from Yenda in the NSW Riverina. Fruit has been grown on the family vineyard for 35 years, but it wasn't until the late 90s that the family started making wines, kicking off with a single Shiraz in 1998. Yarran now makes many different varietal table wines, rich fortified blends and also a classic Riverina Botrytis sweet wine style. Chief Winemaker, Sam Brewer, is always trying something a little less mainstream each year, aiming to overdeliver with quality and produce affordable wines with personality.
